    I'd go with the 2007. The other one has the same resolution, but its bigger, so things will look grainier and fuzzier. The colors are supposedly better, but the lower image quality would make me get the 2007.

    I think the major differences are that the 228 is physically bigger (albeit same resolution) and the 2007 has much better inputs. At 20", the resolution is already only going to be about 85 DPI, though, so I personally would not bother with the 20" screen because I'm used to screens more in the 100 DPI range. The 2007 has a number of additional inputs, as far as I know (I think the E series monitors are more for corporate / office customers), so you can use it for hooking up game consoles, etc, as well as your computer.

    I personally would get the 2007 unless for instance I wanted to put it up on the wall far away from the computer or the 228 was much cheaper.
